CCE

CONTINUOUS AND COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION

 

PRIMARY CLASSES

 

A. FOR CLASSES I & II:

1. There is no formal examination for Classes I & II. The teacher will evaluate the students through continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE). The testing can be done simultaneously while teaching or separately. Most of the time the student will not be aware that they are being tested.

2. There will be minimum 8 cycles of CCE.

3. One cycle of CCE means that all the students of the class are tested in all the competencies.

4. They should obtain at least ‘C’ grade. If a child dets ‘D’ grade in some competencies, the teacher should repeat the cycle.

5. It is therefore recommended that tentatively 10 cycles of CCE should be planned in advance, so as to ensure that at least 8 cycles are completed by all the students securing at least Grade C in all the competencies by March. 

 

B. THE FOLLOWING SCHEME IS FOLLOWED FOR CLASSES III, IV & V

The CCE in classes III, IV & V shall spread over two terms during one academic session.

  1. First Term includes Formative Assessment 1(Pen-Paper Test), Formative Assessment 2 and Summative Assessment 1 (Pen-Paper Test). The duration of the First Term is from 1st April to 30th September in an academic session.
  2. Second Term includes Formative Assessment 3 (Pen-Paper Test), Formative Assessment 4 and Summative Assessment 2 (Pen-Paper Test). The duration of the Second Term is from 1st October to 31st March in an academic session.

The weightage of Formative Assessment (FA) and Summative Assessment (SA) shall be as follows:

Note: FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTPen Paper Test subject wise will be part of the Formative Assessment 1 in the first term and Formative Assessment 3 in the second term. Formative Assessment 1 and 3 in the form of Pen Paper Test will be held by the last week of July and the second week of December in each academic session. The marks secured by children out of 40 in the FA 1 and FA 3   will be finally reduced to 10 respectively. The duration of Formative Assessment 2 will be from the first week of April to the last week of August and Formative Assessment 4 from the first week of October to the last week of the last week of February.

NOTE: A teacher needs to use a series of diagnostic tools like Class test (Written as well as Oral), Surprise Test, Class Responses, Minute Paper (Short descriptions are made by children which give the teacher immediate feedback. It can be done at the end of the class for understanding the effectiveness of teaching-learning process.) etc. during the course of instruction in order to take diagnostic measures for effective learning of children and enable them to write FA 1 and FA 3 with great ease and confidence. Even, the teacher needs to use the feedback of FA 1 and FA3 to take remedial measures to improve the performance of bloomers (slow learners) in SA 1 and SA 3 respectively so that the bloomers could get minimum `C` grade in all the subjects.

SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT: Summative Assessment 1 will be held in the 2nd week of September and Summative Assessment 2 in the 2nd week of March in each academic session. The marks secured by children out of 60 in SA 1 and SA 2

 

will be finally reduced to 30 respectively.

UPPER PRIMARY CLASSES (VI TO VIII) & SECONDARY CLASSES (IX & X)

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT: Within the class and school time only each subject must have only one Pen-Paper Test under formative assessment. The other modes of assessment must be a part of classroom interactive activities. Pen- Paper Test subject wise will be part of the Formative Assessment 1 in the first term and Formative Assessment 3 in the second term. Formative Assessment 1 and 3 in the form of Pen- Paper Test is likely to be held in the last week of July and the second week of December in each academic session. The marks secured by children out of 40 in the FA 1 and FA 3 will be finally reduced to 10 respectively.

SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT: Summative Assessment 1 is likely to be held in the 2nd week of September and Summative Assessment 2 in the 2nd week of March in each academic session. The marks secured by children out of 60 in SA 1 and SA 2 will be finally reduced to 30 respectively.
